I got a desktop I'm not using. I've got 3 laptops which have been around for 5 years. I don't need them, they are old, I wanna chuck them out. However, I am scared that some Somalian refugee will find the hard drive on the landfill, get all my personal information, and then fap on my dog's grave.


Help Pit, what do?

Pls respond.

You can do that or download some partition manager like Gparted and do a full format...even though that might not remove everything depending on how much someone wants your information.

Killdisk.exe, then reinstall the OS using recovery disk. Redownload the drivers.


Do you ever google anything, or do you just relish in any opportunity you get to make another dumb thread? You and bradulator are like the kids on the bus that got picked on all the time, but they never stopped doing what triggered it because it got them the only attention they had in life at the time.

Oh, I'm sorry. I thought the pit was a more direct source of information.

Your answer was excellent, for example. But if you thought this thread was so awful, you didn't have to answer.

Again, you obviously also hate me cuz I'm black.

I don't see why you should be banned for telling people not to look up Robin's Egg Blue Pancakes

This is your best option. The ONLY sure-fire way to destroy your data is, well, to physically destroy it. Sure, Gutmann's 35-pass wipe might be very effective (read: totally overkill by about 5x) but beating things with a hammer is always a fun time, so why not?

Alternatively, if they are 3.5" drives, the hard drive platters make EXCELLENT coasters. Then take the rest of the computer hard ware to Best Buy or another tech store and have it recycled. Computer parts contain a lot of landfill-unfriendly materials

Also, why dont you just buy external enclosures and convert them all to external hard drives? Everyone has a use for that

I'm pretty sure he's just trying to wipe the hard drives so he can resell/give away the computers. If you completely destroy the hard drives then the computer won't be worth the cost to get a new one PLUS reinstallation discs.

Put a bullet through it. That's what I did with my two of my dad's old hard drives. He had an ton of sensitive info on it from him job and instead of chucking it in the garbage or smashing it with a sledge hammer and making a huge mess he gave them to me so my buddy and I could wreck it with my SKS.


Needless to say. It was basically metallic confetti afterwards, and it was fun.
